ACORN is not going down easily, they are going to fight the truth with the same tenacity that they steal our money.
According to the ACORN Press Release today:
When the actors approached Ms. Kaelke with their provocative costuming and outlandish scenario, she could not take them seriously. So she met their outrageousness with her own personal style of outrageousness. She matched their false scenario with her own false scenarios.
“They were not believable”, said Ms. Kaelke of the two actors. “Somewhat entertaining, but they weren’t even good actors. I didn’t know what to make of them. They were clearly playing with me. I decided to shock them as much as they were shocking me. Like Stephan Colbert does – saying the most outrageous things with a straight face.” While her sense of humor might not be funny to many people, the fact is that she spun false scenario after false scenario and the videographer ate them up.
Ms. Kaelke, who did not know she was being filmed, is appalled that her defensive attempts to deal with a troubling experience have been manipulated into an attack on her work helping low- and moderate-income families fight the foreclosure crisis, work for needed health care reform, and face the economic crisis in San Bernardino.
So, was she playing along or trying to help?
While Tresa did in fact say that this deal would not make it through her supervisor, she still tried to help with advice on underage prostitution. As far as her playing along, she may have been exaggerating her life experiences. The entire blosphere figured out this lady was wacked fairly quickly.
ACORN has taken this as far as filing a police report today asking the police to investigate the “alledged homicide”. Looks like Tresa completely lost her ‘street cred’ if it turns out she was lying or end up in jail if she wasn’t – what a dilema.
It looks like ACORN is going to stand by Tresa, since firing all their employees is making them look guilty……………..at least until we see part 2 of the video.

Via Democracy for America:
Locally in San Bernardino, ACORN members and organizer Tresa Kaelke drove voters to the polls, many first-time voters.
Via Acornofinlandempire’s blog:
Friday July 10, 2009
Members Michael and Dennis of the San Bernardino ACORN along with Tresa Kaelke (San Bernardino ACORN Community Organizer) and Christina Spach (California Field Corrdinator); attended the schedule meeting with California State Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod of District 32.
It must have been Tresa’s first husband that she shot, her second one (Ronald Kaelke) appears to be alive and well – with a restraining order against her.
ACORNs response, including the police report they filed to investigate the “alledged homicide”.
Just to wet the appetite – looks like they hit San Bernardino, California. These people are disgusting.
I actually enjoyed this quite alot. We should all be screaming. I must admit he can get off on a tangent, but can’t we all. I am one of those people that cry every time I sing the National Anthem and I was brought to tears during Glenn’s 9-12 program. If this man doesn’t love our Country then he deserves an oscar. My question is, politics aside what is wrong with swelling with pride and becoming emotional when discussing the greatest Country on earth. Yes, we are better than other Countries. This does not mean we are better than other people, just their politics. I am proud to be an American and will never apologize for that pride.
People don’t realize that Glenn’s popularity is simply because he seems to understand the frustration that many of us are feeling. It feels like he’s on the side of the Country and unfortunately we are not getting that same feeling from our Government – so please keep screaming Glenn.
At least he’s not getting emotional about Nancy Drew – what a putz
